SHARE public research

The Association of American Universities, the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, and the Association of Research Libraries are offering a plan they call the Shared Access Research Ecosystem, or SHARE. They propose SHARE as a workable, higher-education-driven solution to meet an August 22 deadline to comply with a recent White House directive to expand public access to research.“Share envisions that universities will collaborate with the federal government and others to host cross-institutional digital repositories of public-access research publications.”

Visit DigitalCommons@Fairfield, an institutional repository service of the DiMenna-Nyselius Library, that offers open access to the collected scholarship and creative works of Fairfield University faculty, students and staff.
